It is almost impossible to provide an accurate estimate of liposuction price unless the surgeon has had the opportunity to examine the patient. One can expect to be given a range of liposuction prices or at least the smallest fee charged for a specific area. For example, if Dr. Jones always quotes an all-inclusive global price, then, for example, the receptionist should be able to state that “for abdominal liposuction, the minimal price is $4000 and may be as much as $8000 for a very large abdomen”.
Unfortunately, scarring is a reality of any breast lift surgery. The amount of scarring and positioning of the incision, however, can be personalized and tailored to the patient’s condition. Generally, a patient who needs a more pronounced lift may need a full anchor scar, while a patient with milder sagging can get away with a single vertical scar. A board certified plastic surgeon will guide you toward the correct type of breast lift for your condition, but it is important to understand that this scarring is the tradeoff that results from having perkier, more youthful breasts.  
Usually, medically necessary surgery dictates where incisions must be made, and it’s sometimes difficult to place those incisions where visibility is reduced. In addition, because medical surgery is performed to improve your health—or possibly even save your life—the surgeon’s focus will be on the primary purpose of the procedure rather than the cosmetic aspects. This may mean closing the incision in one layer, or using staples, which themselves cause scars in addition to the incision.

In addition to a breast lift, many women also consider having other procedures performed at the same time to enhance the overall result. For example, a “mommy makeover” is a combination of different surgical procedures reserved for women who have been pregnant and want to look like they did before the pregnancy. This may include a tummy tuck, liposuction surgery and breast enlargement or breast reduction. There is also a cost savings of having multiple procedures done at the same time.

The expected time and effort that is required to accomplish a liposuction surgery is the most important factor in determining the cost of liposuction. Factors that typically affect the surgeon’s time and effort include 1) Number of areas being treated, 2) Size of the patient, 3) Anticipated degree of difficulty. Thus, cost of liposuction of the abdomen alone is less than the cost of doing liposuction on both the abdomen as well as the inner thighs and knees. Similarly, the cost for abdominal liposuction on a patient who weighs 80 kilograms (176 pounds) might be more than the cost for liposuction of the abdomen of a patient who has never weighed more than 60 kilograms (132 pounds). Liposuction is more difficult and requires more time if the patient has previously gained and then lost a significant amount of weight. In any area previously treated with liposuction, the fat often contains scar tissue which makes liposuction in the same area more difficult.
Call your surgeon: If you have any concerns at all during your recovery and healing process, I’m always available to my patients during this time—I prefer you to call rather than worry about a symptom. I will explain what indicators to watch out for as you recover that might indicate infection or poor healing. I will be checking your progress regularly as well. Any top surgeon should be willing to be there for you during your recovery process.

To answer this question, you have to consider how breasts change over time. Weight gain adds a lot of excess tissue to the breasts; and if this weight is lost, it’s possible that there will be sagging – whether or not there already has been a breast lift surgical procedure done. Thus, to predict how long-lasting your results will be, you have to predict whether you will have additional weight gain – and weight loss in the future.
• Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells, in a painless procedure that lasts about 45 minutes. You’ll have to wait about two weeks to start seeing a difference, with full results apparent in four to eight weeks—and most people need four or more treatments to get the results they want. It has a lower Worth It Rating than either CoolSculpting or WarmSculpting.

A more experienced and esteemed plastic surgeon that specializes in Brazilian butt lift and receives a high demand from patients will probably charge a higher fee. This is why the particular procedure is overwhelmingly surgeon-dependent. That being said, though, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends that patients should select the most appropriate surgeon for the cosmetic procedure they need to undergo, rather than make a decision based on the surgeon's fee. This is because working with the most qualified surgeons, who usually cost more up-front, will indeed save you expense in the long-term, considering that they tend to provide exceptional outcomes with a much lower risk of complications.


The most common procedure is something that involves an "inverted T" or an "anchor" scar,one that goes around the areola, goes straight down, and then underneath. It's a lot of scar. Advocates - and I am one - feel that it gives the best shape, tightens the breast most completely and thoroughly, and because tension is distributed evenly along the length of the scars, that though long, the quality of the scar is likely to be good. Critics think that the benefits of the shape do not justify the length of the scar, and that this technique is prone to something called "bottoming out", which is when the lower part of the breast stretches.

I would recommend an in-person consultation with a plastic surgeon where a thorough physical examination and measurements will be made to determine the best treatment plan for you.  At the consultation, you should view before-and-after photos of various breast lift techniques in patients with breasts similar to yours to see if you like the results before undergoing surgery.  Best of luck!


When it comes to breast lifts the most common questions I get each day concern the probability, risk, and/or how we can avoid scarring.  While I would like to be able to offer patients a 'scarless' breast lift, the reality is that breast lifts will always require incisions and to get a great cosmetic result the type or placement of incisions is not dependent upon what I would prefer to do but rather it is dependent upon how much breast sag or ptosis a patient exhibits, the patients balance between skin and breast tissue and where this laxity in skin and tissue exists.  
At DePerro Plastic Surgery the cost of Liposuction is $1750 for the first area and $1000 for each additional area.  There is also approximately $2000 in costs for anesthesia and the facility fee.  We perform all of our liposuction procedures in our attached surgery center under general anesthesia and sterile conditions.  This maximizes your safety and comfort so you don't feel any pain during the procedure.  Also, because you're asleep we are able to be more thorough and remove more fat.  So in total 1 area of liposuction under general anesthesia would cost approximately $3750, two areas $4750.  
The fat used in a Brazilian butt lift comes from your own body from areas where it is in excess like the abdomen, thighs, arms, upper and lower back, and flanks (sides and love handles). Because the fat is purified and cleaned before being re-injected into the body, it will not be reabsorbed, allowing it to help shape the new contours of your backside. If you are not looking to use fat injections, implants are also available for a buttock lift procedure.

we use the collagen-inducing fillers called Sculptra. The ploy lactic acid microsphere in the fillers induce the body to make its one collagen at a different area of injection such as face and neck. Lately, we start using this technique for adding volume to body areas such as buttocks. Using hyaluronic acid fillers is not an option here as it will cost a fortune before achieving satisfactory results.
The technique used for your procedure will also influence the appearance of your scars, so talk to your surgeon to get a complete explanation of the typical scarring associated with each technique, including the standard (anchor) breast lift surgery, doughnut mastopexy, and crescent lift techniques. Together, you can determine which option would work best in your particular case.
We think you shouldn’t have to wait to look better, and more importantly, feel better about yourself. To help our patients afford liposuction, we offer financing options. When you apply, we’ll take a look at your credit history to determine your qualification and financing amount. Upon approval, you can book a date for your procedure. Afterward, you’ll make monthly payments. Financing can help you get where you want to be sooner rather than later.

The surgeries that risk more significant scarring are the much more common vertical or “lollipop” lift and the inverted T or “anchor” lift, which feature two and three incisions respectively. As they are more invasive surgeries than a crescent lift, you can expect more extensive scarring, but as long as you and your surgeon can provide proper care and observation, these can fade and can be easily hidden while you’re waiting for them to fade.
Following breast lift surgery, patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which typically last from two to three weeks. Prescription pain medications may make patients more comfortable during the first week of breast lift recovery. Patients are required to avoid sleeping on their stomachs for the first two weeks, and are advised to take sponge baths until the sutures are removed. Your doctor will make other suggestions to maximize comfort during the recovery period.
Dr. Nichter and Dr. Horowitz prefer to use a short #scar technique, known as the “lollipop scar” or “donut lift” rather than anchor pattern lift which involve more significant scarring, and is used by the majority of surgeons in the United States. Additionally, scar therapy with scar maturation products (e.g. BioCorneum or Embrace) are suggested for managing scars. However, we recommend you begin usage of scar improving products a few weeks following your surgery. It is always recommend to call and see your surgeon to discuss your #healing concerns.
There tends to be some numbness in the nipples and skin after breast lift surgery; this should disappear in approximately six weeks; in some rare cases this numbness can be permanent. Some patients experience a burning or tingling sensation in the breasts during breast lift recovery as the nerves begin to return to normal function. Breast lift surgery patients should not lift anything over their head for three to four weeks following surgery, and should avoid lifting anything heavy for four to six weeks.
Each year, thousands of women undergo breast lift procedures to restore the shape and volume of their breasts for a more youthful breast contour. Oftentimes breast lifts are combined with other procedures such as breast augmentation or breast reduction. In cases like these, the breasts are lifted as they are increased or decreased in size. The result are breasts that look and feel better!
For more invasive liposuction procedures, we encourage our patients to stay with a friend or family member afterward. If this is not possible, you may want to consider hiring a home health care worker to help take care of you. The cost of this will depend on the type of worker you hire (registered nurse, registered practical nurse, or personal support worker), and how long they stay.
While on the subject of minimizing lift scars, many people use breast implants to fill up an empty or slightly droopy breast. Though this is just a semantic way of thinking about it, droopy breasts need to be lifted, and deflated/collapsed breasts may be fixable with an implant. Of course, a woman has to want to have implants and be larger to approach droopiness with an implant. And one of the most common problems I see in women with implants is women who really needed a lift, but instead chose to put in a big implant, making them larger than they wanted to be and stretching and thinning their tissue out more.
A Brazilian butt lift is a specific procedure that aims to enhance your natural curves to give you a firm and youthful behind. Otherwise known as a gluteal augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift relies on the transfer of fat from other parts of the body. The fat is removed via tumescent liposuction, cleaned and purified, then re-injected or grafted back onto the buttocks.
Liposuction is often combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, as part of a mommy makeover. The fat that’s removed can also be purified and transferred to the face, butt, breasts, or other areas to restore lost volume or create more fullness. You’re a good candidate for liposuction if you have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or below. If you’re looking for a weight-loss solution or cellulite treatment, liposuction isn’t your best bet.
Costs vary based on the amount of fat harvested and grafted, but average around $8,000 to $15,000. Insurance rarely covers the cost of procedures that are solely cosmetic. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Unqualified injectors sometimes offer cut-rate buttock injections. This should be a red flag that something is amiss.
The most commonly asked combined procedure is that of the tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) and Brazilian butt lift, which is particularly favored by women that have just become mothers and want to get into a sexier version of themselves after giving birth. On average, a tummy tuck ranges from $7,500 to $9,500 and you may negotiate a discount with your plastic surgeon if you decide to have both procedures performed at the same time.

Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most expensive choice, If the initial cosmetic results are so bad that another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon. Among the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3) irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction. Caveat emptor (Buyer beware).
The average cost of liposuction is about $6,000. Your cost will vary based on factors like your surgeon’s level of experience and office location, the amount of fat being removed, and if you’ve had liposuction before. “Most people price liposuction based on the number of areas being treated—and in general, the per-area cost will come down with additional areas,” says Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Mathew A. Plant, in a RealSelf Q&A. “Usually, the first area is more expensive, because this price includes the costs of the operating room, equipment, and anesthetic. Once you’re into additional areas, those costs have mostly been covered, and you’re simply adding time, which allows for a price drop.” Liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure, which means your health insurance will likely not cover it.
Aging brings on a general redistribution of body fat, especially around the middle. For women, childbirth can leave behind a roll of stubborn and unsightly belly fat. And, of course, genetics count for a lot, too. But when it comes to liposuction, not all fat is created equal. Fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise is usually subcutaneous fat, which lies beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscle wall. The good news is that’s what liposuction is intended to remove. Liposuction can remove pockets of flab, recontour your middle and improve your shape.
Dr. Cohen specializes in breast lifts, augmentations, revisions and reductions as well as breast cancer reconstructions. A long time dream of Dr. Cohen’s was to travel to developing countries and provide expert surgical care to those who have no other possible access to medical care. This became a reality in 2007 when she became a founding member and Vice President of ISMS Operation Kids.
At this point, opinions vary. Some doctors seem to agree that having a tummy tuck and a Brazilian butt lift simultaneously is the recommended way so that the patient does not have to undergo a second surgery and second-time anaesthesia. Also, costs are less if those two surgeries are performed in one go. Other surgeons suggest the butt lift and tummy tuck are done separately. This is because the recovery after a tummy tuck involves the patient remains in any flexed or bent position at the hips while the recovery after a butt augmentation requires that the patient reduces the pressure applied to the butt region, as much as possible. So, for a patient that has had both procedures at the same time, it will be difficult to find a position that makes them feel comfortable. The rest of the plastic surgeons recommend the patient has the butt lift first, where fat is aggressively being removed from the waist and abdomen, and then schedules to have a tummy tuck to address the loose skin in the trunk and the abdomen after they have recovered from the butt lift.

Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to provide more comprehensive results. At Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery, our experienced surgeons may recommend enhancing liposuction outcomes with other surgical procedures if this will help achieve your cosmetic goals. A mommy makeover, for example, may combine a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with liposuction for women whose bodies have changed after having children. 

Gaining in popularity is something called the vertical lift, which involves a scar around the areola and then straight down the breast, eliminating the underneath scar. Proponents think that the shape is good, that the breast maintains a lot of projection over time without bottoming out, and that the underneath scar is avoided. I believe that many of these breasts look overly projecting to my taste, and that bottoming out can be minimized with the inverted T style pattern. I also feel that the underneath scar is rarely seen, and that the scars that are seen - around the areola and going straight down, seem relatively more visible with this technique since it requires some bunching up of the skin during closure. Understand that some of the best surgeons in the world argue with one another about this issue at meetings all the time!
You’ll be in a recovery room immediately after surgery. When getting ready to leave, a nurse will go over instructions on how to care for the drainage tubes, antibiotic use, and other important information about post-surgical care. She will also discuss symptoms that are commonly felt after surgery as well as the types of complications that could result.
SAFELipo®: This technique incorporates both tumescent liposuction and PAL and features a 3-step process that helps ensure the contours of the treatment area appear natural, smooth and attractive. After the targeted fat cells are removed, the thin layer of remaining fat is smoothed to prevent lumps, dimpled skin, or other irregularities that can undermine the results of liposuction.
Despite the increase in research on fat grafting to the butt, many questions remain. For example, there is no exact science behind how much fat to harvest or inject. The fat that is injected must develop its own blood supply to survive — and, on average, just half of it does. This means that 50 percent of the injected fat dissolves. To compensate, some plastic surgeons will over-inject. They don’t always get it right, and repeat treatments are often needed.
In any case, you can probably find the average costs of all procedures in different cities right here on Realself. Plastic surgery fees vary a lot from surgeon to surgeon, from place to place, and country to country.But beware of choosing a surgeon solely on price. Make sure to do your research and make sure he or she is a board certified plastic surgeon.
